Patient Information Forum (pif) – New toolkit

PiF has launched a new Toolkit designed to support anyone involved or interested in the creation of high quality health information. It identifies the best practice in creating heath information that works, and sets this alongside the evidence, practical tools and resources, and case studies showing how different organisations have approached developing their health information.

The Toolkit is presented in four sections:

Each section breaks down best practice statements into key steps with accompanying useful resources.

You can read about how they developed the Toolkit and the evidence behind it here. A pdf and printable version of the best practice statements and key steps can be viewed here.
